Girls First Fund

They are a donor collaborative supported by leading philanthropic organizations and individual philanthropists who have come together to champion community-led efforts so that all girls can live free from child marriage and create their own future. They focus on girls, families, and communities because they believe they are in the best position to create lasting, local change and to address the root causes of child marriage. The Girls First Fund is the first funding partnership of its size focused on ending child marriage with grantmaking directed to community-based and locally-focused national organizations. As a fund, they provide an easy mechanism for other philanthropists to join us—to learn, to grant, and to raise the visibility of ending child marriage and early unions. Together, they can amplify the important work of their grantee-partners. Structure The Girls First Fund is a fund of Capital for Good USA, a U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity. Capital for Good USA disburses grants on behalf of the Girls First Fund. Geneva Global, a philanthropy consulting company and certified B corporation, supports the Girls First Fund and Capital for Good USA by providing strategic advice, program and grant management, donor engagement, and operations services.
